This estimate uses too many unverified hypotheses like the number of
devices per visitor and, implicitly, the percentage of the time when
visitors were connected on the network.

A much more accurate estimate would be the number of flyers printed 
the number of flyers remaining after FOSDEM.  Does anyone have these

anyway: great event once again; thanks to the org team.  It seems
like Brussels has become the centre of the Free Software world :)
